Saw the heavily censored version last night project from a video master as WB refuses to let any prints be shown, let alone the restored director’s cut from 2008. More »

Probably the best movie that ever had Paul W.S. Anderson’s name attached to it in some capacity, as producer in this case. More »

Yes Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Partial review)

December 17th, 2008 by Alice

For those that don’t know, Yes Man is the new comedy starring Jim Carrey.  Co-starring is none other than Zooey Deschanel, and in the movie she has a band.  I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t know exactly how prominently the band will be featured, but four songs by the fictional band are included on the soundtrack.  These four songs are what I will be reviewing.

Wanted

This film is based on the comic book of the same name. Now forget the last sentence, because this film has nothing to do with the comic on which it is based other than the title (and maybe a few character names). But you know what? Who cares!

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

This movie takes everything you loved about the first Hellboy film, throws in the liberal doses of Pan’s Labyrinth’s visual style, and then cranks everything up to 11. More »

The Happening

This film is one of a select few to actually transcend any critics leveled at it by being worse than anything you could imagine just from reading the reviews. If anyone tells you that this film isn’t as bad as critics say, then they obviously don’t like you very much. More »

The Incredible Hulk

I don’t want to oversell this movie, but I think we can safely add it the list of “best super hero movies ever.” It easily ranks right up there with Iron Man, Batman Begins, and X-Men 2. If I had to use one made-up word to describe the movie, it would be “nerdgasm.” More »

Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay

May 7th, 2008 by exolstice

Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle wasn’t exactly a title designed to lure in viewers like myself, or anyone for that matter. The first film did very poorly at the box office. The prospect of watching a couple of stoners on the hunt for burgers from a practically unknown fast food chain did not interest me in the slightest. The only reason I even gave it a chance on DVD was because of a glowing recommendation from a friend with similar tastes. And I’m glad I did. More »

Young@Heart

May 1st, 2008 by exolstice

Lately, it seems like every new documentary film that comes along is heralding the end of the world, or at least focuses on some negative aspect of society. While a lot of these films are well-made and worth seeing, they certainly aren’t entertaining in the traditional sense of the word. That’s why it’s refreshing to sit through something like Young@Heart which focuses on something positive for a change. More »

The Forbidden Kingdom

Jet Li and Jackie Chan, together at last! It sounds like a match made in martial arts movie heaven. Unfortunately for us, the filmmakers decided to make the hero a white kid from South Boston, but that’s not the only place they went wrong. More »
